THE CITY OF BOZEMAN’S 10% Energy Reduction Challenge kicks off with this year-long workshop series called Home Energy Solutions for All. The series offers free short lectures convenient to attend over your Friday lunch hour. Bring your lunch, spend an hour and learn about energy solutions.
March's topics address Common Retrofit Mistakes, starting off with this week's topic "Finding and Sealing Air Leaks", with lectures on Seal It Tight - Ventilate Right, Attics and Roof Retrofits, Insulation Installation Mistakes, and Economics of Retrofit.
The lectures are led by experts who can provide technical information and practical advice. Each lecture will include a hand-out summarizing the topic and includes a list of resources for further research. There will be time for Q&A at each session. With this format, we will help you learn how to evaluate your house and prioritize your energy options.
WHY is this relevant to you? 72% of Bozeman’s greenhouse gas emissions are from the electricity and natural gas we use in our homes and commercial buildings. Weatherization makes a difference.
Bring Your Lunch and Join Us Every Friday! Door Prize at Every Workshop: Drawing for efficiency supplies!
